DDM Prays for Peace in Kaohsiung
The Secretary General of Dharma Drum Mountain Social Welfare and Charity Foundation (DDMSWCF), Venerable Guo Qi, attended a prayer ceremony hosted by the Kaohsiung City Government at the Fengshan Stadium on the morning of 8 August, 2011.
The ceremony was held to pray for peace in Taiwan, and also for the victims hit by Typhoon Morakot, a deadly natural disaster that affected southern Taiwan in August 2009.
During his speech, Venerable Guo Qi reminded the audience that “Peace arises from a peaceful mind within. The more people’s minds are at peace, the more peaceful society will be.”
